A quote from George Brecht: 'Chance alone is at the source of all novelty, all creation.'
Originally from Switzerland, iW discovered the sunny and languid shores of Antibes at the age of 8. He joined Paris where he studied industrial design and new multimedia creation media. His first exhibitions in cafés and galleries on the Right Bank quickly followed. In his work, for the spectator as for him, the lines and curves, the nuances and the invented calligraphies are as many free marks, heterogeneous assemblies, spontaneous gestures, to end up with a surprising result between comics and singular art, abstract and contemporary but where the humor is not absent.
Influenced by Dada and Surrealism and inspired by George Brecht, iW creates his works mainly with spray paints and ink. A very important first step is the creation of a bubbling of pigments that are then deposited "randomly" on the medium, causing a arbitrary mix of shades and textures. A second step is to interpret and generate an unpremeditated form, a character or a floating animal. Each work gradually becomes an interpreted scene or "an unidentified fluctuating character", funny, fantastic, strange, absurd ... The sequence / magic of shapes and colours create a dream, leaving to the individual who views the canvas his own journey.
